Nathan Danville returns home to the Midwest ranch where his millionaire stepfather was fatally stabbed. He's joined by his fiancée, city surgeon Heather McManus, who does meets her prospective mother in law, Ann Danville, who clearly cares only to return to political prominence as when Matt's late father James was governor and hence expects Nathan to run for office, which he never aspired. After a duplicitous welcome, she scares off Heather and sends dodgy ranch handyman Keith Slier to make sure she stays away. An inquisitive TV reporter is silenced the hard way. Meanwhile Lyle Rosenbaum's clinic depends financially on Ann's generosity, in exchange for keeping Nathan's committed sister a silent patient since James's violent death. Written by KGF Vissers

Deadly suspicious 10/10
27 August 2011 | by cheesyturdSee all my reviews

Wow! Just. Wow!!! talk about ten out of ten quality!!!!! Deadly suspicion left the audience with a tingling suspicion (ironic don't you think), what and amazing sound track to accompany this edge of your seat thriller!!! world class acting indeed!!!! why did this film not win an Oscar??? where has this film been all my life?? My vote: a movie for all ages and a definite watch :) this is the rise of the next generation of prime acting, i like the way the director puts across a very leading and tempting trail of events throughout the movie. suspicious. and quite creepy indeed. a few screams in this movie which is to be expected with actors like marilu henner and emily bergl :)
